BioPince® Full Core Biopsy Instrument

BioPince® Full Core Biopsy Instrument utilizes our triaxial core, cut, and capture system to harvest diagnostic quality specimens while reducing the risk of crush artifact and tissue fragmentation. A full cylindrical specimen is harvested for clinical diagnosis.

Up to 58% more tissue volume. A peer-reviewed study demonstrates a 16G BioPince full core sample offers up to 58% more glomeruli than a 14G conventional side-notch biopsy instrument.

Optional: Echogenic coaxial introducer needles allow for flexibility in approach.

  • Up to 58% more tissue volume than traditional core biopsy devices that use side-notch technology
  • Easy specimen retrieval expels sample when device is re-cocked
  • Variable throw lengths enhance clinical flexibility: 13 mm throw yields 9 mm specimen length, 23 mm throw yields 19mm specimen length, 33 mm throw yields 29 mm specimen length
  • Ready to fire indicator
  • Safety button allows locking the device to prevent misfiring
  • Centimeter markings provide reference for depth placement
  • Can be used with optional echogenic coaxial introducer needles
